In the Gracie Bullyproof program, our goal is to instill in your child unshakable confidence so they can overcome bullies without violence. We will teach your child to use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and several non-violent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. Importantly, we don’t teach how to punch or kick, since this often does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence.
The Little Champs program is for kids 5-7 years old (we offer private lessons for children ages 3-4). Using our time-tested “Gracie Games,” we teach the Little Champs basic self-defense techniques while instilling the foundational principles of leverage and control. The secret to the success of this program is that we make the lessons so fun that the kids beg for more! Once a child masters all ten Gracie Games, they advance to the Jr. Grapplers program.
In the Jr. Grapplers program, we focus on 33 non-violent self-defense techniques that teach children to “neutralize and negotiate” with the bullies. Verbal assertiveness strategies are a major portion of this curriculum. A child needs absolutely no experience to start, and we guarantee a noticeable increase in your child’s confidence within a few weeks!
Every child experiences bullying, but not every is equipped with the tools to overcome it. The Gracie Bullyproof program empowers children with the non-violent techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and the verbal assertiveness strategies to neutralize bullying before it spirals out of control. A confident child is a Bullyproof child! Find a Certified Training Center near you to begin preparing your child for life, the Gracie way!
